My Diabetes + My Kids

My three old is proving to put up the challenge lately with sleep. And the other night, after I tucked him in, I heard him upstairs, mumbling about something “forgot, forgot, forgot.” Mind you this was a Thursday night and all I needed at the moment was a breather, so I let him settle himself …

Recipe: Flaxseed “Grain-less” Granola

I picked up this recipe after reading “The Plan,” by Lyn-Genet Recitas. While I have modified the recipe to my liking, it was easy to make and currently my go-to afternoon snack.
